Older blog entries for Stab (starting at number 5)

Just got my CVS account on cvs.openbsd.org; it came totally out of the blue when they gave me the offer, and took me about 0.0000001s to accept it :-) I've just been hacking away at random ports so far, but I'm gonna figure out how to get organised and do stuff.

Looking forward to working on the OpenBSD ports tree, and hopefully helping out with this unified BSD ports system whenever that comes about.

Finally stuck a preview-beta release of OpenFX up that Stuart Ferguson sent to me. Feel free to check it out and send me feedback ...

ftp://ftp.openfx .org/pub/openfx/beta will give you a start - it's a hefty 40mb Win32 demo! It's not been announced until I finish setting up the new machine for it (brick.recoil.org), so we can handle the volume of downloads and mail that would probably result.

Shouts out to James who said he'll help us mirror it on flirble!

At least my dislocated wrist is better now (rollerblading+taxi's don't agree), so I'm starting off Capoiera (sic?) on Monday! It's gonna be fun :)

Been playing a lot more with DocBook at work, and Jon Parise and I have been recreating the incredible phpdoc repository for the Horde/IMP project. It's a pretty mad combination of M4/XML/SGML/DSSSL that combines together and outputs in pretty much any format you would care to name.

Definitely warming to the idea of SGML as a documentation markup language, although I have yet to find a decent editor for markup under Unix (dont particularly like emacs, and vi doesn't quite cut it). Any suggestions anyone? I've heard that XMetal 2.0 is a good one ...

Woohoo! After a really fun debugging session with Rob, we got PHP4 working as a DSO under OpenBSD. It's been bugging me for ages, and it's great to see it finally work.

Patch has been committed to PHP CVS, so the next release should see a PHP4 package for the ports tree.

Rocket Arena 3 rules. Nuff said!

Just polishing up the little perl util ive been working on to generate frequency statistics from stdin ... its so useful to keep track of stuff like qmail/dnscache/apache usage it's untrue ...

Also the recoil.org homepage is shaping up nicely! Should prove to be a good hub for Recoil and OpenFX projects.

Oh, and shifting Recoil from Linux to OpenBSD soon as well ... kind of a growing up stage for us :)

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
